Another version of the Bella Voce, this one done in White Holly. The S/N of 8757-7 probably means a production date of 1927. Most probably the reason for it's short production run is that it was always cataloged next to the more ornate Florentine, which became much more popular, although a bit more expensive. However this gracefully hand carved banjo, along with it's rarity, makes it a very desirable collectors item today.
